SOURCE: Broken windshield wiper

Men will always protect/support the other men so I will check my wording :-))

First check the condition of the wiper shaft outter splines when the wiper arm is removed (emerging from the wiper grill) Clean any corrosion and dirties. If the spine is worned or in bad condition then the wiper pivot will have to be replaced by a new one (few nuts to be unscrew by under the wiper grill and disconnecting from the link kit rods). Eventhough the splines seem to be ok, turn ignition switch and wiper switch on and check if the pivot shaft is moving back and forth. If not, there is a problem with the link kit rod disconnected in a joint.

If the shaft splines are ok and shaft is moving then check the wiper arm inner splines. Chances are that they are in bad condition (the arm metal being 'softer' than the pivot spline metal. If it's the case, have the arm replaced.
Replacing any parts make sur outter and inner splines are well engaged/fitting before tightening arm bolt
Sorry for my english
Hope it will help

SOURCE: front windshield washer nozzle

Use a thick needle (or tooth pick), partially insert into the nozzle and gently re-orientate the direction. Test a nozzle spray and repeat steps until desired trajectory is aquired.

2001 Subaru Outback- my wipers stopped working in the middle of a snowstorm.


You will need to inspect the wiper transmission (this is the part the electric motor turns that swipes the wipers across the window) under the cowl in front of the windshield, it has most likely broken or come loose from link rod or the motor shaft connection came loose.

Regarding a 2001 Subie outback. In intermittent and low speed my wipers travel the proper distance while on the highest setting the drivers side blade travels past the windshield. Any thoughts?


this issue is commonly caused by worn out bushings in the wiper linkage. They are fairly easy to replace just pop out the damaged one and match it up with a new one and pop it back in.
Below is a pic of the replacement ones that come in a multi pack made by dorman

2001 Subaru outback driver side windshield wiper goes to far to the outside tears up the end of the blade - ideas please


I have the same problem with a 2001 Legacy wagon. The problem is not as simple as the solutions above. Mine are adjusted to park as low as possible when off. Even so, the blade on the drivers side goes all the way off the windshield. The Subaru dealer wants to replace the whole wiper blade transmission for about $450. Looking online it seems to be interconnecting arms and pivot points that connect the motor to the wiper blade arms.

The passenger side windshield wiper has quit working.The driver side still works.


You will need to remove the plastic vent to access the motor. The motor should be held in by 2 or 3 bolts.

If the motor turns and wiper doesn't, that means the motor shaft is stripped and you will have to pull arm off shaft and use JB Weld and place on shaft , than replace arm and let dry for a day. OR replace motor.
